Simple Decorating Ideas for Summer- Seasonal Simplicity Summer Home Tour

| | | |

Welcome friends and welcome June! It’s so good to see you both back so soon. This month marks the start movie nights in the backyard, barbecues with close friends and family and more days of sleeping in. If only I could dismiss that darn alarm clock on work days, I’d have nothing to complain about.

If you are stopping by from Krista’s lovely home at The Happy Housie, I’m so glad you’re here!
 

 

Today, I’m joining several bloggers to share simple ways we’re decorating our homes for summer. I’m throwing in a few easy ways to get your home decorated for this warm weather season along the way. Special thanks to my friends Krista at The Happy Housie and April from House by Hoff for organizing this event.

 

Be sure to check out all the lovely homes linked at the bottom of this post!
If it’s your first time here, let me give you a little background. My husband, Jason, and I are renovating our 1915 bungalow located in the upstate of South Carolina. We both love old houses, remodeling and a good design challenge. My design style is a mixture of what I’d describe as cozy, cottage farmhouse.
 

 

So, without further ado… let’s start at the front porch, shall we?

I don’t have the time to be as crafty as I used to be so when I’m in the mood to make something, it better be quick and easy. I made this rag and ribbon bunting over the porch swing using this tutorial in about 3o minutes. It adds a bit of color and whimsy to the front porch.

I picked up a few items from the Dollar Tree and made a faux succulent candle centerpiece inside one of my DIY aged terracotta pots. Those pots have made it through more seasons than any of my plants ever will.
Although I tried to let go of some things at our last yard sale, I’ve clung tightly to my dear vintage inspired Charleston sign that I made several years ago. I promised Jason that if I could keep it, I’d used it. So, here goes to promises kept. It looks lovely over the table I snagged then painted from Habitat for Humanity for $20. On top of the table, I placed some potted phlox in a vintage tool caddy.

Right off the porch is the tiny shed that we made into a guest cottage just last month. This is how the shed looked just a couple months ago.
 
 
While my heart is usually drawn to a fairly neutral palette, the touch of blue in this space makes it feel like summer to me. Click here to see the rest of the pictures. I promise you’ll love all the details we put into it.
I haven’t changed much in the entryway since the spring tour. I swapped out the vintage blue fan and colorful flowers for a more neutral display of white hydrangeas and my favorite black and white photographs.

Nothing says summer quite like flowers, right? So, above the mantle in the master bedroom, I placed an arrangement of free botanical printables.
I love being able to keep fresh flowers or greenery on display, so I made a farmhouse style milk bottle vase holder that I can keep on the mantle or use as a centerpiece when we have company.
Just yesterday, I shared our modern farmhouse master bathroom reveal. We spent several months turning this room from a spare bedroom into an en suite bathroom and 2 other spaces that we’ll be revealing soon. There’s a new sense of calm in the house now that another big project has been complete. Jason made the landscape oil painting on the shelf and it brings just the right amount of color into this room.

I hope you enjoyed my little summer home tour and I hope even more that you enjoy these last couple of weeks of cool, spring evenings till the warmer weather arrives. 

Now, it’s time to head over to Sonya’s beautiful home at At HOME With The Barkers.

  17. Hi! Where did you get the white with accented wood stain console table?

  18. Just a suggestion: the big Pinterest logo on each post often blocks things I would like to see. It would be much better if they were put in very bottom left corner. I just often pass when it’s covering something. Thanks. Love everything else.

    1. Thank you, Joette! I always appreciate suggestions for improvement. I just changed the position of the Pinterest logo to the bottom left of the pictures. Hope you have a wonderful July 4th holiday!
